Assessment of Crop Production

1999; Malawi

Itad conducted an assessment of the level of production (area and yield) of the major food producing crops in Malawi. Itad was invited to conduct an assessment of the level of production (area and yield) of the major food producing crops in Malawi as current estimates were apparently overstating production levels.

The study, conducted by a team of four (including a Malawian crop statistics expert), carried out extensive field work in the country. Their work includes a review of the existing methodology being used, preparation of crop estimates for 1998/99 and making recommendations for a new programme of crop production estimation to improve the method used, area coverage and interpretation.
